Recognizing the early signs of autism is not always a mystery, but learning about the right types of foods, therapies and interventions can sometimes be obscure and elusive. Helping facilitate the success of an autistic child can be challenging without the right tools. Planning for a child’s future, having resources at your fingertips and knowing what steps to take is my best advice to you. By being your own best advocate for those with autism, you can stay up to date on the latest biomedical and educational interventions. And, by keeping with current intervention methodologies and having the resources needed for recovery, you can help those you love achieve a better quality of life.
If you know someone you suspect has autism or you have a child you suspect has autism, I would encourage you to seek early intervention. Intervention at the earliest diagnosis of autism has already helped thousands of children world-wide and continues to do so. Many have found presentations of renowned autism authorities to be very helpful.
